The Post, quoting government sources, said federal investigators have alleged child-labor violations--most of them involving illegal hours--in every one of the eight restaurants in the Grandmothers Inc. chain, which employs about 900 people.

I enjoyed the photo of Dennis Hunt last week. How about one of Robert Hilburn? KERRY L. MOORE Mission Viejo We can't. Hilburn doesn't really exist.

What's in a name? It occurs to me that one of the problems the Democratic candidates are now experiencing is that they don't sound presidential. Bill, Bob, Tom and Jerry just don't evoke national or global leadership. I wonder if we would have been as impressed with previous chief executives if they had presented themselves as Teddy or Frank Roosevelt, Herb Hoover, Jack Kennedy or Dick Nixon. Jimmy Carter got away with it once but I do believe that he would have commanded more respect at home and abroad as James Earl Carter.

Senate Banking Committee Democrats accused Bush Administration officials Thursday of harboring "conflicts of interest" in their management of the escalating savings and loan crisis. Waving copies of a five-year-old lawsuit unearthed by committee staff members, Sen. Timothy Wirth (D-Colo.) asked the official in charge of the S&L cleanup why his agency hired a San Diego accounting firm once sued for negligence in the collapse of San Marino Savings & Loan.

You needn't know the difference between a missal and a wimple to appreciate "Nunsense!" but it wouldn't hurt. Ostensibly a fund-raising musical revue produced and performed by a troupe of nuns, Dan Goggin's hugely popular show is aimed at people who have experienced Roman Catholicism firsthand. Loaded with inside references and broad puns, it satirizes ritual, not doctrine. Anyone who missed the Great "Nunsense!"

You'll have to excuse Quartz Hill High School Athletic Director Bobby Loughridge for his lack of press-conference etiquette Wednesday. The list of questions for running back Aaron Emanuel, who announced that he would be attending USC next fall, appeared exhausted, and Loughridge wasn't sure how to end the conference. "The main problem with never having an event like this is that we don't know when it's over," Loughridge said. "Thank you, Mr. President."

Charity celebrity-chef events have become as popular as 10-K runs, with squadrons of chefs turned out neatly in white jackets, clouds of mesquite smoke, Gucci-clad event-goers attempting to balance paper plates of foie gras or Sonoma lamb on cool glasses of Alexander Valley Chardonnay. But in the earliest days of the hunger-relief organization Share Our Strength, its Taste of the Nation events were among the few on the scene.

Republicans bent on establishing the GOP as a permanent force in the Old South scored important Sun Belt victories Tuesday, but they apparently fell just short of restoring parity in state governorships across the country, where Democrats have held the majority since 1970. With 36 governorships at stake, 19 of them open races and 15 of those being vacated by Democrats, Republican strategists went into Tuesday's balloting viewing the gubernatorial contests as a "generational opportunity."

Questioning man's relationship with God is certainly viable subject matter for drama--Shakespeare did it, Samuel Beckett did it, August Wilson is still doing it. But, when a company brings a predetermined set of answers to the questions, it runs the risk of seeming preachy or heavy-handed. Lamb's Players Theatre's San Diego premiere of Marsha Norman's "Traveler in the Dark" is both preachy and heavy-handed. Which isn't to say the production has no value. It does.
